Welcome to Baby Nomad, the home of massage and yoga for babies, parents and families

Hello! I’m Julie Bickerton otherwise known as Baby Nomad. I’m here to support and nurture you throughout pregnancy and early motherhood so you can find some peace in the chaos!

My philosophy is to promote positive touch in all areas and stages of life. I provide a space where we can be honest and share our highs and lows of parenting. Together we create a community of ‘Baby Nommaders’ where lifelong friendships are made.

My wide range of experience and continuous personal and professional training helps me incorporate many different facets to my work. The work and training that I do is constantly evolving and my main inspiration is simply the parents and babies that I teach.

My varied background provides courses that are inventive, fun and interesting- I hope you think so too!

‘Nomad’ started back in 1997 with my sister and we developed a thriving client base providing treatments in Reflexology, Indian Head Massage, Swedish Massage, Aromatherapy, Acupressure Chair Massage, Thai Massage and Pregnancy Massage. I’ve worked at festivals doing massage, led workshops teaching massage to teenagers, taught special needs groups,  massaged in corporate environments and have always attended a wide variety of courses & received a lot of different bodywork as well as exploring my own wellbeing through my own continuing yoga practice.

After I had my son, Beau, in 2007 all my energies and interest moved towards babies and I was able to start teaching courses to fit around him. I am a Certified Infant Massage Instructor, a Birthlight Baby Yoga teacher, SMART (Stretch, Move and Relax Together) Toddler Yoga Teacher, Post Natal Yoga Teacher, Rainbow Kids Yoga Teacher (yoga for children and families) . I am a Babywearing Peer Supporter and and have a constant interest in baby development and research.
